Free Lyrics

by Paula Cole

I keep walking down the same city streets
The same city lines, to the same lonely beat
People say, Hello, but I don't know what to say
I don't know how I feel, I just can't act that way

I wanna hide from all these strangers
I wanna run home to you
All I need is your compassion, yes
We can be free, yes, I wanna be free, yes
I wanna be free, yes, I wanna be free

Oh, the way I'm shut out by your silence
It's the loudest thing I've ever known
You leave me, leave me hanging
'Til I feel useless with my hope

Oh, it's lonely in the city, it can be lonely next to you
And just have the courage to open up yourself
Then we can be free, yes, I wanna be free, yes
I wanna be free, yes, I wanna be free
I just, I wanna be free, oh, I wanna be free, yes, I wanna be free

Oh, it's lonely in the city, it can be lonely next to you
And just have the courage to open up yourself
Then we can be free, yes, I wanna be free, yes
I wanna be free, yes, I wanna be free
I just, I wanna be free, oh, I wanna be free

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, oh, I wanna be free, yes
I wanna be free, I just, I wanna be free, yes
I wanna be free
